Overview

Mary Ellis follows her captivating Widow’s Hope with a new story from the heart of Holmes County, Ohio. In Never Far From Home, fifteen–year–old Emma Miller finishes school, starts her own wool business, and is longing for someone to court. When the object of her affection is a handsome English sheep farmer, with a fast truck and modern methods, her deacon father, Simon, knows he has more than the farm alliance to worry about.

Emma isn’t the only one with longings in Holmes County. Her aunt Hannah wants a baby and her uncle Seth hopes he’ll reap financial rewards when he takes a risk with his harvest. But are these the dreams God has for this Amish family? With engaging interactions and thoughtful characters, Ellis weaves a story about waiting for God’s timing and discovering that the dreams planted close to home can grow a lasting harvest of hope and love.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“I really enjoyed reading Never Far from Home. The story of the Amish girl and the English boy is a common storyline, however, I continue to enjoy the way Mary Ellis's characters love to be Amish and don't hurry to conform to the English lifestyle. Her writing style is so easy to read and her characters are so real and enjoyable. You just can't wait for Hannah to become pregnant. You wish it for her like she was a friend or family member. And the mistake Seth makes in planting more corn shows a human side to this character. Great read, can't wait for the story to continue.”
—Marie Lawrie

To Amelia Bragg<br> 3630 Bell Avenue, Fortsmith, Arkansas, <br> 57628<br> <br> Dearest Amelia, <br> I am sorry to say that your mother and I will not be able to make it back to America. Our flight was canceled, so we are staying in Tokyo until the next school year starts. <br> We have contacted your mother's sister Penelope and her husband. Miss Heather Gonzalez across the street will drive you to the airport so you can fly to Louisville, Kentucky. <br> Your mother and I will bring back gifts and travel brochures from Japan. I hope you have fun with your cousins Leslie and Cole! <br> <br> Love You Always, <br> Mom and Dad <p> A/N: So, first of all, this is the first story i have written on my NOOK. I wrote the prologue and some of the first chapteron my laptop. So, anyways, sorry i it looks weird, Never Ever Give Up, Stay Gold, and always remember-MOR COWBELL! (I am weird.) Thanks for reading!~ &#10023 Hendi &#10023

This is a very good book. The second in a series following a wonderful Amish family. I couldn't wait to see what happened to the family after I finished the first book. Once again I couldn't put the book down.

Emma Miller is a young Amish girl who has finished school. While she still has her chores to do, she also has her own wool business. Emma works hard as she knows her mom needs to have surgery. The Amish community relies on a central fund where they all donate money to in case someone needs medical help. On a buggy ride to town to sell her wool along with her Aunt Hannah, Emma meets a young English sheep farmer named James. She finds him nice and is attracted to him, and he finds her attractive. After seeing him twice she decides on her 16th birthday to announces to her family she wants to take her full Rumspringe. That is where things become hard for her as they fall in love with each other. She loves being Old Amish and can't imagine a life not being Amish. Yet James is English and heading off for two years of college. He tells Emma to wait and he will find a way for them to be together. But can young love endure all the challenges? Can James really find a way for them to marry someday? I would recommend this book to all who love reading about the Amish. Also for new readers who have never read Amish fiction.

Please read this series in order. These Amish ladies show a totally new way of reacting to the Amish faith. The show their faith while still being independent. The mother of the family is ill and the daughters show a real love for her and each other in the ways they provider for her.
